Protests Linger On?

We heard your message loud and clear
That very first time in our state and others.

You are being careless about obstruction
Of justice and trespassing in the public.

Use your approach the smart way; rather
Than to constantly "cry wolf.”

Are you coming up with the education and
Ideals that will make a change for the better?

How about your dignity and common sense?
Do you have plans for a town hall meeting?

Try having discussions in the proper place
As a society it works for about everyone.

With Christmas Love

The brightness of the sun
The midmorning of the day
The parking of the vehicle
The warmth of the coats
The fashion of the boots
The coldness of the air
The falling of the snowflakes
The glisten of the snow
The sound of the doorbell
The arrival of the guests
The welcome of the greeting
The decorations of the tree
The twinkle of the star
The sparkle of the ornament
The blinking of the lights
The scene of the nativity
The conversations of the people
The laughter of the children
The scent of the atmosphere
The glow of the fireplace
The romance of the couple
The comfort of the afghan
The festivity of the holiday
The calmness of the music
The setting of the table
The light of the candles
The smoothness of the wine
The sweetness of the apple cider
The blessing of the prayers
The deliciousness of the meal
The exchange of the gifts
The ending of the evening
The final hour of goodbyes
The darkness of the night
The light of the moon

Shoe Polish

Yes, I need my boots polished.
Showing signs of wear and
Showing weakness of color;
Looking shabby and dull.

I see a fellow in the airport
Making them shine and sparkle.
I love his work, so well done
In the finest minute of time.

The polish displayed a match
Looks all brand new again.
Feeling like a new woman/man
In the duty of his work.

I left him a payment, and a tip,
For a superior fashion he did.
It gave me an emotional high;
When you’re looking your best.

Once Upon a Time

There was this young girl/young boy…

What choices did they make?
What was important to them?
What talents did they have?
What did they pursue?
What obstacles had they faced?
What emotions had they felt?
What did they discover?
What gifts had they received?
What was their purpose?
What power did they acquire?
What had they learned?
What circumstances came forth?
What outcome did they have?

We are essentially the story of our life!

Thanksgiving Moments

Reflecting on this past year;
And my, did it go by so fast.

It was simply another year;
But we heard so many stories.

Misfortunes abound this year;
And we often learn from them.

Renewing ourselves in the year;
Brings more understanding.

Families gather this calendar year;
Showing love, smiles and laughter.

With enjoyment it was a fun year;
Desires of the heart came forth.

Blessings of an abundant year;
We give thanks to the Lord.

Like a Brother

Throughout my life
I always found a brother.

He helped me out in so
Many ways with advice.

It was something important
For me to fully understand.

He was always there
With a helping hand.

He took care of me just
As if I was a sister.

Kept me on guard in
The many things of life.

Thanks for being there
When I needed you the most.

As I adopted you like a
Brother; to have and to hold.

A Girl was Born

From a country life to the
Sophisticated life of the
Metropolitan areas…

She was determined to
Succeed in doing her best-
All that she can be…

By a driven soul that was
Only hers to know God-
Would have a vision…

Troubled life in the earthly
World, pushed the courage
Beyond all measure...

From being shattered to
Building strength within
Her own consciousness…

Nothing can stop the will to
Go on; when you were born
On earth for a reason…

A reason that she can only
Know and determine; as
Daily she lives on.

A Daughter of God

That soft skin of yours,
Fresh and dewy-
And the blue eyes
Opened like the sky,
And sun shines around you!
Envelope all of you
Almost hugs you.

I could see for a glance,
You know-by a chance
You and youth too,
Cheeks and lips too,
All your face and body;
Composed of pink flowers,
Loveable princess
Lovely nymph.

Dear Daughter of God,
That’s what you are-
That’s the sources
Of your sweetness.

Those eyes that are kissed by
The moon,
From them ethereal nectar
Your mascara lined eyes
Hold heaven within them.

And when she looks at the sky,
Moon and stars peep through
To get a glance of your
Alluring face.

Those lips that are kissed by
The moon,
From them ethereal nectar
Your pinky lips
Hold love within them,
Hold positive spoken words,
Hold an inspiring smile.

And when she looks at the sky,
Moon and stars peep through
To get a glance of your alluring face
And of the pink flower in your hair.

Miraculous Healing Still Happens Today

This connection of mine has been reading my comments in social networking for some time now…even sent me, along with others’ named, a picture of flowers in her updates.  Then one day, she decided to email me a message…often times in response to my own words in commentary.  Then this came to me one day.

Social Networker in quotes     Carol Kappes in unquote    Edited for privacy


“Peace and good!
I hope you believe what I’ll tell you.
I have 63 years and my husband is __ years. We met on January, 2012. My neighbor introduced me to him. A fortnight later he returned with a gift and proposed to me.”

“I told him that I had breast cancer in 2010, (finish treatment in November this year, 2015) said God has led my parents, I’m an only child and I was not here to play.”

“He looked at me and said, “I keep saying I’m going to marry you.”

“He visited me a few weekends, and on 12 May, that same year he took me to the city, where he lives, went to a jewelry store and he told me to choose alliances. He took me to visit his friend who blessed our alliances, got engaged in the presence of the Bishop and he scored our wedding for June 26 of that year (2012), the day of my birthday, the day I turned 60.”

“He is an engineer and I am descended from Arabic.”

“As for my cancer, my oncologist told me in January, 2015 when I take test results. “Mrs. ____ has no doubts I’ll tell you: You are completely cured.”  My husband and I cried with joy.

“I wish you to be very happy. Kisses, ____”

So nice to meet you and to hear your story…I seen that you have enjoyed my comments and maybe my website. Thank you so much.

Even you look like a young lady!  You certainly are blessed.

There were many things in life that I missed; and that is why I look forward to the future…I only think of the future…as my past isn’t worth going back to.

You certainly have a wonderful story to tell.  God works in mysterious ways…in which I also had known.

We exchanged a few more pleasantries and photos and I tell you, she is a sweet lady and so beautiful. She lives in South America.


This story reminds me of scriptures when we have the ability to pray and praise God for things that we ask him.  This can be read in Psalm 103:1-5 (NIV)

1.       Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name
2.      Praise the Lord my soul, and forget not all his benefits
3.      Who forgives all sins, heals all your diseases
4.      Who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion
5.      Who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s

The World Needs Prayers

I hear of the Middle East refugees
I hear of the drought in the world
I hear of the violence in society
I hear of the shooting occurring
I hear of the intolerance of people
I hear of the poverty destitution
I hear of the fires breaking out
I hear of the disaster's destruction
I hear of the economic situation
I hear of the war’s aggression
I hear of the immigration problems
I hear of the mistrust and lies…

And there is so much more unwritten

Seek, and You Will Find

This social networker has been an acquaintance for an amount of time. We were talking on the relationships of men and women; how there are many variances.  Then this came up by surprise:

Social Networker in quotes     Carol Kappes unquote


“I skimmed through your website.  Seems like you know the answers you are looking for.”

My website?


In what way do you mean?

“The site you showed me.”

Your thoughts?

“Just in general. Last time we talked you seemed to be looking for answers to life, men and such. It seems as though you have written those answers in your blog.”

I know myself really well. You are very right. There are things I know that others don’t. Also things I FEEL that others don’t.

“Sometimes I think a person can know the answer, but reject it because it’s not what they want to believe.”

What you said does happen within a family, yes.  I kind of live in the spiritual world; my heart and mind does.  Interesting your conversation to me.

“Well, if this is your spiritual world. I like it. Lol! You are fun to chat with”

On my website under “Links of Interest” is where I look; where I am at in life.

“I’m going to read through it again. You have a lot of thoughts there. A lot to take in.”


This correlates to the Bible story of Matthew 7:7-8 in which it says:
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

Beautiful Eyes

God has blessed you, by giving such beautiful eyes,
Which says everything, shows every color of life.

You need not to use any word for expressing your
Emotions, your eyes does it beautifully.

Please take care of it, it’s not just a body organ…
It’s a medium which touches the heart of people.

I am not saying this just for the sake of saying, it’s
Voice of my soul right from the bottom of my heart.

I Don’t Understand, it’s now Yemen

And so much of this in the Middle East


Are they subject to violence and hate?
I just don’t understand their mentality


Death of humans has skyrocketed in
Just the past few years in thousands


Is this a human ecosystem gone crazy with
Rage, anger, intolerance, hatred and evil?


Is the meaning to life and having purpose;
Living and breathing, loving and caring


Will the manner and direction to human life
Take precedence over anything else?

Lady Shakespeare

When my target readers of the new generations are aware of my website; they find it interesting. I do enjoy captivating audiences worldwide. After this networker read the site; this is what he had to say. This person was in the 30’s age range from India.

Social Networker in quotes          Carol Kappes unquotes


“Read all your blogs…all I can say, you are Lady Shakespeare.  Now onwards, you are my mentor, seeking your guidance for my future life.”

I’m authentic and visionary.

“Your imagination is sky high.”

You think so? I don’t say things till I know it is right.

“There is a famous quote in India for writers “where sun cannot reach, a writer can.”

I’m into the spiritual world here on earth, a little bit.

This is the second person to say that I make use of imagination.  I’ve always been a forward thinking person; even as a child.  And I remember thinking and wondering about the world, always wanting to know a lot about it. May love always guide your way.

In God’s Eyes

When I view this world in “God’s eyes”
I see men and women equal. Adam was
Created. His wife Eve, was placed for
Adam’s completeness.

Eve had taken advice from someone other
Then her man; which deceived her. It was
When man (and woman) didn’t listen to
God that made the world what it is today.

I’m beginning to see that is why respect,
Love, peace and joy are mixed in with
Disrespect, hate, chaos, and misery. How
Many people today live for God?
